|Death: ||Jun. 1, 1878|
Aged 91 yrs. 3 mos. 28 days.
Note: According to the dates on his tombstone, Michael was born in January of 1787. However, that can't be correct as his brother, Mathias, was born in December, 1786. It wasn't unusual for people to not know their actual ages in those days. I think he was born in 1788 but have found no proof.
Michael and Anna, with their 3 eldest children migrated from Somerset Co., PA in Oct., 1817 and purchased 60 acres of land from his brother, Mathias, which he improved. They lived on this homestead until their deaths. Michael and Anna were the parents of 11 children. After Anna's death, Michael married Elizabeth Peters on April 8, 1838. They had no children.
